Tis the Season for Giving…

November 9, 2015 at 2:17 am (Uncategorized)

I’ve been in the same workplace the past three Christmases, and every year there’s a charity “shoe box” drive.  Thing is, this charity contains a catch.

Open up the box, and there’s a pamphlet inside which explains that when the children receive this box, it will contain the greatest gift a child could receive: the word of God. “Here kid. Jesus wants you to eat this Bible.”  Uh, huh. I don’t support religious charities.

Now here’s the thing. The same day as the shoe box appeal began, the Guardian published a very interesting report about a study in the UK with children. It seemed the more religious the children were, the meaner and more judgmental they were. Don’t take my word. read the story.

And let me be the first to wish you Merry Nothing.
